Looks to me like the Bob Basher's club here is a tiny minority of one - WT.

Count me as Bob fan - I can't imagine a better complement to JG playing. The effect together is of two lead guitars. If they did not have a strong keyboard player, a lot a rhythmic propulsion would be missing. I cannot imagine the GD without him, not to mention all the songs he wrote!

72 is a good year to hear Bob in his glory... but listen to any Estimated/Eyes from 77 - thank you Bob, for making them a treat.

Yes, our monthly meetings go quite smoothly as a result; you've never seen a more efficiently run outfit. Streamlined, economical; unfortunately, we may be forced to downsize. The positive news is that keeping up the good fight, given how easy the overall job is, requires only about one tenth of one percent of weekly work-effort, so I forsee no real reduction in productivity vis-a-vis Bob Bashing.

Now, about the Yellow Dog story...
